Mitt was once (I think?) a typical Northeast Republican. Then he went and repudiated himself from his record. Of COURSE the generic Republican voter isn't going to be able to trust him. And Democrats and independents aren't going to know which way he's going to go, or if he was *really* a Northeast Republican in the past. Everything he did may have just been one big scam. Nobody knows.

I wouldn't have voted for Mitt no matter what party he was affiliated with.

/He has a shiat-eating grin that makes his face very slappable.
 
2012-10-02 08:38:04 AM
He was the best choice the republicans had amoungst those running in the primaries.

He's merely practicing cutting edge Quantum Conservatism.
 
2012-10-02 08:46:59 AM
Eek. The election is still a month away and they're already starting to say Romney isn't conservative enough? That can't be good.
 
2012-10-02 08:47:30 AM
He has enough problems that disqualify him from a position of trust in any organization.

Romney was always a bit of a used car salesman, but he showed the American public he was willing to be the as big of a shyster as necessary to get through the Republican primary.

Let's be honest, we wouldn't trust anyone they would have nominated.

Is there a Party that strongly supports the Divine right of the wealthy to rule? That's the party Romney should be in.
 
2012-10-02 08:50:23 AM
So he could have had a humiliating loss as a democrat instead as as republican? This isn't a partisan issue. Right now, Romney's job is becoming President. Romney is bad at his job.
 
2012-10-02 08:52:25 AM
As president, Mitt will not only appoint an Attorney General who will defend the Defense of Marriage Act - a bipartisan law passed by Congress and signed by President Clinton - but he will also champion a Federal Marriage Amendment to the Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman.

Republicans. So, yeah, he's in the correct party.

I am quite sure if he gets elected as a "conservative Republican" that he will remember the conservative Republicans that put him there. His bridges between ideologies will finally get burned.

As it is he has got Robert Bork as his chief legal adviser. You want scary, considering this wack job choosing Supreme Court justices. You know the guy who says that only political speech is protected by the constitution and that scientific literature, literary works, etc. are not. Yes he said that explicitly. And the bit about scientific literature is very much explicate as is the bit about literary stuff. This is a person Mitt says should have been put on the court. A man with little respect for law. Google: Saturday Night Massacre.

I don't get it.

There isn't an Insufferable Douchebag Party yet.

Maybe there's one in the future and Obama can give him a quick one way trip and get him in on the ground floor?
 
2012-10-02 08:57:05 AM
Romney's main problem is that he is Romney.
 
2012-10-02 09:00:32 AM
It's because, to be a Republican in 2012, you have to be likable to:

- sibling farkers down in the bayou
- volunteer border-patrollers with assault rifles slung across their backs and white sheets in their dressers
- descendants of Texan oil tycoons with the ability to fire three revolvers into the air at once
- people who believe slavery was a "state's rights" issue and never miss a Civil War battle reenactment (in their Confederacy uniform, of course)
- farmers that consistently fail to realize that your policies, while very Jesus and bald eagle-y, will turn their farms into bubbling cesspools
- people who live in gated communities within gated communities

It's a very diverse group, and they don't get along. Pander to some, and to others you will appear crazy, not Jesusy enough, etc. Oh, but that won't make them vote for Obama. You ARE the "other guy", after all. Either they will suck it up and vote for you, or they'll throw their vote to the libertarian, or they won't vote at all. Those last two things... aren't so good for you.

If he was a true conservative, he'd be winning.

^That's what these magical-thinking shiatstains believe, anyway. Romney is hated in conservative crazy-holes like Free Republic, where they have been known to actually ban people for defending Romney.
 
2012-10-02 09:06:08 AM
That incident with the dog on the top of the car is what will (probably) cost him the election. As the article pointed out, Americans really like their dogs....

2012-10-02 09:20:51 AM
I don't know if you remember, but about six months ago, Republicans voted for him over all the other candidates (at least in the handful of states that count primary votes).

Crazy, huh?

If he was a true conservative, he'd be repeating the crazy shiat that comes out of his mouth, not saying it was "poorly worded."

Muta: He was the best choice the republicans had amoungst those running in the primaries.


I think Jon Huntsman was the most qualified and he seems to be a really smart guy. He only polled at 1%, though.
 
2012-10-02 09:40:37 AM
If it wasn't for the Republican penis-goes-where bigoted platform, Romney would be wining hands down. It really isn't Romney that most independents and centrists dislike, it is the radicalization of the party. Many feel that a veto of such absurdity is needed in the Executive Branch.

/How I feel at least

he believes in evolution and climate change. that's a non-starter for the modern republican party.

Oh come now.

Laying aside the man's failures as a human being, can you imagine the levels of herp and derp that a Democrat running for president who spent the Vietnam years in France and owns a dancing Olympic horse would cause?

Rush Limbaugh would have had a heart attack by August. Glenn Beck would have actually strangled a crew member on his show, live, in a fit of ecstasy. The opening montage to Fox and Friends would be a series of CGI dancing horses wearing berets. Steve Doocy would ride in on a horse everyday, dismount, and immediately shoot it between the eyes. O'Reilly would have interviewed the remaining cast of Mister Ed. Suddenly BBQ horse meat and freedom fries would have become the most popular thing at carnivals south of the Mason Dixon line.

Holy fark, you know? There's an alternate universe where this happened, and Fark has a 'Horse' tag.

This. Huntsman wasn't willing to appease the crazies in his party so nobody voted for him in the primary. Romney was willing to say anything people wanted to hear, so he was reluctantly nominated after every other candidate imploded. The problem is that the Republican party is so far removed from the rest of the country that the things one has to say to get approval from Republican voters will be off-putting to the rest of the country. Republicans could win if they didn't have to vote for their nominee.

Huntsman?

YES, I KNOW I KEEP BEATING THAT DEAD HORSE

When the GOP primaries were just getting underway, I looked at Romney's record in Massachusetts. And while I definitely didn't agree with a lot of his issues, I *did* agree with others. I figured, if nominated, and Obama were to lose, at least we wouldn't have a real psycho up there like Santorum, and maybe we'd have a President that wouldn't try to turn the US into Jesusland.

Boy, was I mistaken. At least with Santorum, you know what you're getting.

To be fair, the current GOP would never nominate Huntsman, so UNC is correct.

He should have run as a liberal like he did in Massachusetts.

Huntsman has a more conservative record as governor than Romney does, but he also governed a much more conservative state.

We still have no idea who Romney really is, what he plans to do, or what's in his tax returns. With a month to go before the election.

This is Meg Whitman all over again.
